    LOL, excellent! Would this fine automobile feature the same 100 horsepower, carbureted 2.8 liter V6 as the original?

    Super cool man. I'd love to see the Citation revived... along with the Celebrity, Beretta, and Chevette. You should come up with an alternate Chevy lineup... it could be called Chevy-lite, and consist of all the old, unloved retired models.

    Haha yeah, I guess that's sort of the idea. But I'd rather something like 'The Chevy Graveyard' or 'Chevy 2.0' or 'Chevro-late Model' or 'Trailer Park Chevy'.

    Re: 2008 Chevy Citation

    Go for it man! But make sure you keep the essence of what the vehicles were... you did just fine with the Citation, so I'm sure you'll nail them. The Celebrity Eurosport was as boxy as they come... but there was something almost 'modern-classic' about it. Keep that rigid roofline man! The Beretta had a rather open and airy greenhouse, with a very simple profile and clean sides. I think a 2008 Beretta, with the same cues, would look very low, fast, and sleek. As for the Chevette, it shouldn't be too cute, but instead, kind of utilitarian looking. Same profile and headlights, but a little more modern. It should almost be a Lada-version of an Aveo, I think! Those are my ideas... but I can't draw worth *****... so I'm living vicarously through you man! Good luck!

    Nice! The rear view mirror looks retro! I really liked how the Citation 4 door model looked! Too bad it was such a bad car!

    It wouldn't be a Citation unless it has the vertical in-dash AM Radio! (Great drawing!)
